Wonder

This is my second in a series of self-affirming posters that I have developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Similar to my first word+photo diptych¬†Awareness, this photograph was created using expired 120 film, and was made during the development of my Gardening For Ordnance project in 2018. I am spending probably a little much... Continue Reading →

March 20 – 2020 Photo #5

So back to a black & white photograph for this urban landscape, #5 in a short "COVID-19 what to do with myself so I don't have huge anxiety" series. Or something like that. I had pre-visualized this spot along my walk in both color as well as black & white, and at this moment during... Continue Reading →

March 19 – 2020 Photo #4

Since I was one of the few people walking (or bike riding) in the canyon, I was doing my part for social distancing. Minimal social... Continue Reading →

Altered Landscape photographs

I have been writing a series of articles about landscape photography, which I think is equally applicable to nature or urban landscape locations. Most recently¬†after I had been surprised by some photographic results, but then with that new knowledge, to then be able to pre-visualize and photograph similar locations and situations with intention. Someone asked... Continue Reading →

DSLR surprises?

Recently when I wrote about being surprised when I returned to the studio to find a totally unexpected as well as unimaginable landscape, I was poked about being surprised about the resulting images. If I were on a commercial shoot, I would probably being evaluating each frame, as a client is not going to pay... Continue Reading →

Re-imagined unimaginable landscape

This is the third post in a string about imagining a landscape, while last post I reflected on being surprised on finding landscape photographs that I had not pre-visualized (imagined). My theory is that once you realize that a certain type of photographic image may result from a given set of circumstances (sorry, the scientist... Continue Reading →
